After a monumental night of MMA action, UFC president Dana White awarded Junior dos Santos (Pictured), Ricardo Lamas, Ben Henderson and Clay Guida each an additional $65,000 for their special performances Saturday night at “UFC on FOX.”
In a matter of only 64 seconds, dos Santos not only captured the heavyweight title by putting down Cain Velasquez, but he also took home ‘Knockout of the Night’ honors.
Although there were two submissions on the card, Lamas walked away with the ‘Submission of the Night’ award for his arm triangle choke on Cub Swanson.

“UFC on FOX” took place inside the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.
